Outpatient Laboratory Services

Lab tests are an important part of your healthcare. Vanderbilt University Medical Center provides fast, reliable and convenient laboratory services with exceptional customer service.

If you have blood work ordered by an authorized Vanderbilt healthcare provider, you can walk into any of our convenient locations to have your blood drawn. You can drop off other specimens (e.g., urine, stool, etc.) at either The Vanderbilt Clinic (TVC) Patient Lab on our main campus or at the Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks Patient Lab.

  • Phlebotomy – blood collection from veins or capillaries (i.e., “finger sticks”)
  • Specimen processing – collection and preparation of other specimens for testing (e.g., urine, stool)

Testing Notes
